Can you carry peacock eggs from the USA to India in carry-on luggage in an Emirates flight? And if so what is the procedure?

    Do you mean eggs from which you want/have to be able to raise peacocks? Or to be used as food? I am not sure either is allowed but it might make a difference. – Willeke Feb 10 '18 at 11:20
  • Or are the eggs going to be hard boiled before the flight? – Willeke Feb 10 '18 at 12:41
  • I thought Peacock eggs were defenetely going to be very difficult to carry - How about some eggs of ayam cemani chicken - they are some amazing chicken species and am not sure if I would be able to get hold of them in India - so wanted to take eggs from USA to India in an Emirates Flight for raising/hatching them.@Willeke – Sha Feb 13 '18 at 16:29

    I think you would need to check with the United States Department of Agriculture (to ensure it is legal to remove from the country), and the equivalent agency in India, and with the airline. – Mark Stewart Feb 18 '18 at 0:56

Bird eggs are classified as "Restricted". Source -> Restricted Items. With valid explanation for the purpose you are carrying, you can take it to India.
